    He hasn't used the word terror even once during his speech.
    Instead, he used the word 'violence', as to not to anger the Muslim world.
    Why would the use of the word terrorism anger the muslim world? Its happening isnt it? Its a reality, is it not?

    It wouldn't anger Muslims to speak reality

    Some of them like to deny it, and some of them refer to it as 'a legitimate resistance to the western control and intervention in Muslim lands'.

    Why the silence then? Why did the crowd only clap when Obama spoke in favor of Islam?

    What? Did you expect them to clap criticism?

    From President Obama's speech:

    Violent extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority of Muslims.
    This is somehow weaker because he did not use the word "terrorist"?

    I do not know what you are saying, but the US can live long, fruitfully and happily without Israel. Israel needs us, we do not need them.

    Yes it is weaker.
    Terror is a stronger word than violence, and killing people just because they belong to a certain nation or culture(the west) is not simply violence.
    You're American. Was 9/11 simply violence for you?
